Subject: Criminal Law and Procedure

High level criminal law text that invigorates and challenges students, encouraging them to look at the law from different viewpoints.

Principles of Criminal Law 4th edition, explores the criminal law of every Australian jurisdiction and seeks to place it into the wider context of Australian society. It examines the principles of the law in detail, providing a thought-provoking and engaging experience for the reader by analysing and challenging these principles from interdisciplinary perspectives, such as sociology, psychology, criminology, and legal theory.

This fourth edition is updated in all areas and contains topical sections on the expanding boundaries of federal law as well as the development of "cybercrimes". Other areas that have been significantly updated include:

- defences to homicide;
- extended common purpose and acting in concert doctrines;
- sexual offences;
- offences and defences relating to family violence; and
- conspiracy to commit money laundering offences.

This edition maintains a strong focus on the importance of reform, particularly in the light of human rights.
